as staffers tweeted out pictures clearing out the west wing to make room for donald trump and the next administration later today. one photo shows empty photo frames where all of president barack obama's pictures used to hang. the president will be moving into a new house in northwest d.c. pretty soon. i think within the next couple day, once he's back from vacation in palm springs. and a singer has been getting a lot of flak on social media for being one of the few r&b singers to perform at donald trump's inauguration. so much in fact that she wrote an open letter on twitter expressing why she decided to perform while many others are boycotting. she says she is willing to be a bridge to unify the country. >> a lot of support from other artists. certainly we can move past this and enjoy the day. >> yeah, hopefully today is calm and peaceful. still ahead, no poll ticks
